The Southern Boom.
The Southern boom is viewed differently
from d.fierent points. The Washington
Post says that “the Southern h<K)m seems to
have coT.e to stay” and calls attention to the
movement to establish n large shipyard at
Mobile. The Chicago Tribune publishes an
article entitled "The Southern Boom Col
lapsing.” The article, however, is not in
tended to be an unfriendly one, although
little appears in that journal which shows a
kindly feeling for the South.
The Southern boom ts not collapsing; that
is, there is no falling off in the energy and
enterprise that the South has been display
ing within the last year or two. and no de
creaae of confidence in the South's future.
Capitalists an* as satisfied with the prognws
the South is making as they ever were,and are
as ready to invest their money in her mines,
forests and lands. They understand that
her resources ar -very great, the develop
ment of which has only begun. Many
railroads are being built, and iron, cotton
and other factories are being erected.
It may be true that in some of the towns
there is not so much excitement over corner
lots as there was a few months ago, but that
Is txs-ause speculation has carried prices to a
point which is unwarranted by anything
which appeals to the judgment of genuine
investors, and which makes even reckless
speculators hesitate. The excitement, how
ever, which has subsided to some extent
will spring up again when improvements,
which are being made with wonderful
rapidity, and which are fully justified by
the resources of the country, have so far ad
vanced as to afford convincing proof that
the South has a solid basis for any boom in
her behalf, however great it may lie.
A distinction must lie made between the
Southern boom and the booms which real
estate syndicates, interested in this or that
town site, may start. Some of the town
site hi suns may flourish for awhile and then
disappear, but the Southern boom is bound
to have a steady, healthy and permanent
The Blackwood Case.
The Blackwood case, which has caused se
rious complications between the authorities
of Georgia and those of South Carolina,
lias developed some new phases. In order
that these may be understood it will be nec
essary briefly to review the case.
F. A. Blackwood, a resident of Aiken
county, South Carolina, was charged with
having forged a check on an Augusta bank.
Without obtaining the necessary requisi
tion, Eil. Stone, a policeman, and J. P. Mc-
Nally, a bank clerk, went to Blackwood’s
home on March 8, arrested him, and car
ried him to Augusta and lodged him in jail.
When the case was brought to
the attention of Gov. Richardson,
of South Carolina, he requested Gov.
Gordon to have Blackwood's trial delayed
until the circumstances attending the arrest
could be inquired into. Gov. Gordon in
duced the court to delay the trial, in ac
cordance with Gov. Richardson's request.
Subsequently the latter took the position
that Blackwood had been kidnapfied, and
demanded his release and return to South
Carolina. The demand was not granted,
Gov. Gordon holding that he had no au
thority to do so. The ease was then re
ferred to Attorney General Anderson, who
decided that Gov. Gordon’s action was right.
The new phases in tho case are these: On
April 27 Gov. Richardson sent a requisition
to Gov. Gordon for the delivery of Stone
ami McNally. The offense of which they
are charged in South Carolina is kidnap
ping. The requisition would have lieeu
promptly honored but for the fact that in
dictments were pending against Stone and
McNally in Georgia. Gov. Gordon cannot
deliver the two men to tho South Carolina
authorities until tho indictments have been
disposed of by the Georgia courts. On
April 29 Gov. Richardson petitioned the
Judge of Richmond Superior Court
for a writ of habeas corpus to
bring Blackwood before the
court, so that the legality of the prisoner’s
arrest and detention might lie determined.
On the same day Blackwood also petitioned
for a writ of halieas corpus. Tito Judge
sanctioned the writ., and ordered Blackwood
to be brought before the court on May 11.
There is no disposition upon the part of
Gov. Gordon to uphold Stone and McNally,
if they have been guilty of an offense. He
simph insists that as long as Blackwood is
within the jurisdiction of a Georgia court,
and indictments are pending in Georgia
agaiiLSt Stone and McNally, he is powerless
to interfere in the case, and that, only tho
courts can unravel the complications,
courts, of course, will see that justice is done
to all the parties concerned.
The ifeformed Criminal.
A few days ago the Morning News called
attention to the case of John Ryan, who was
arrested at Louisville as a suspected felon.
It will be remembered that Ityan admitted
having served a term in prison, and that he
declared tho suspicion with which he was
regarded on that account prevented him
from making an honest living. Another
case, that of a journeyman painter in
New York, is a fresh illustration of
tho difficulty experienced in obtaining
employment by persons who have
been in prison on account of the commission
of crime. This man appliod to Mayor
Hewitt for help. He said that a youthful
indiscretion got him into prison, out of
which he was pardoned. The fact being
known he was constantly subjected to un
pleasant suspicion. Every time he obtained
employment the Painters’ Union would
make his unfortunate indiscretion tho pre
text of requesting his discharge by the
bosses, until finally liis family was driven to
the verge of starvation.
One of the fundamental principles upon
which Christian society is founded is for
giveness of the rejioiitaut sinner, but it is
a principle which seems to ho lost sight of
in cases where the sinner has gone so far as
to get himself into prison. The treatment
of the ex-oonviet who honestly desires to re
form is almost us bail as that of the ex-con
vict who continues in his evil ways. There.
are very few who havo sufficient philan
thropy and faith in human nature
to believe in the reformation of
n criminal to tlie extent of
giving him employment. The police in tho
larger cities say that this is duo to the fact
that hut lew criininnis ever really reform.
It is a fact, however, that seine do reform,
and they ought not to lie debarred from
til li ng u living. -
The case of tho roformed criminal pre
sents a serious problem. He must live, and
if he is not given the opportunities ucrorded
to those who liuvo not committed crime, he
will cither become a mendicant or again
join the ranks of criminals. In the interest
of society it might lie well for tho Ktute to
provide employment for him until it is seen
that Ids repentance is genuine. Better (his
time that lie should "oo forced into men

TIIE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, MAY 2, 1887.
Discipline for the Young'.
In this <lny of improved methods in the
school room bodily punishment is not often
adniindtercd to refractory pupils. Instead
•‘a black mark'’ or “detention after school’’
is the mild punishment used to deter them
from violations of rules, or to induce them
to study th'-ir lessons. It is the experience
of teachers, however, that the improved
methods of punishment are failures, aud in
coiLsenuence there is a general demand for a
return to the hickory rod or the whalebone.
Perplexed iwdagogues may find a sugges
tion in the plan of punishment adopted by a
teacher in New Beil ford, M iss. Miss Nut
ter, the princiiwl of a p-imary school iu
that city, tries water ujxm refractory pu
pils. She does not drown them, blit she
takes them to the sink and washes their
faces. Her plan, perhaps, would be unob
jectionable were it not fur the fact that she
does not use a sponge. She holds the youth
ful faces under a faucet and lets the water
run until her victims are almost paralyzed.
Her plan is sanctioned by the superintend
ent i>f schools, but the parents of the pupils
object to it upon two grounds: They say it
is inhuman, and that they prefer to wash
their children’s faces without outside help.
If demagogues can overcome the objec
tions to Miss Nutter’s plan it may not be
necessary to return to the rod or whalebone.
There are reasons to Itelieve, however, that
the old methods of punishment were the
best. There is a wonderful amount of per
suasion in a well seasoned hickory, whether
it is used to prevent bad behavior or to in
duce study. Its use, too, is a curb upon
forwardness. The youths of thirty years
ago were willing to let their elders control
in most matters, but now the latter are
allowed but few privileges. The youths are
in command. If their teachers do not suit
them they strike. If parental authority
presses too hard upon them they leave home
and proceed to work out their own destinies.
Of course there are exceptions, for now and
then the hickory is still found in use.
Old men who were "thrashed into subjec
tion.” as they express it, unite in the opinion
that the young should be brought under
stricter discipline. The thoughtful observer
will admit that they are right. Thore
ought to be a reform, and it should begin
in the family. Severe punishment ought
not to be Inflicted, but boys and girls should
be made to obey. As to the schools, nobody
would care to see the “old field schools” re
established, but it would be well to try a
little of their efficacious discipline. Nothing
has been gained by practically allowing the
young to control themselves.
Suicide In Jail.
Within the last few days two prisoners
confined in Georgia jails have committed
suicide.) At Eastman, William Sliine, a
negro, imprisoned for a trivial offense,
ended his career with morphine, and, at
Macon, Cicero Darby, a white man, con
demned to life imprisonment for the mur
der of his cousin, ended his life with the
same drug or some other jtoison.
The criminal records of Geor
gia contain a number of
similar cases. Men condemned to expiate
crime upon the gallows have not infre
quently escaped the disgrace of such a
death by committing suicide. In every
case the officers charged with the care of
the prisoners have professed to be greatly
surprised, and have seemingly bqen-tottfljle
to explain how tho deadly drug, the knife,
or the pistol, was obtained. When .sijeh
cases occur it is not the rule to make inves
tigations. The unfortunate _
oner's body is buried, gnJTtliat
is the end of the matter. This sort
of thing has become too common inTledr
gia. It is the duty of the jailer to see that
his prisoners are properly guarded, so that
justice may not be defeated. He has no
right to allow crowds of visitors in tho jail,
unless he takes precautions to prevent them
from holding secret communication with his
prisoners. In tho the case of
Cicero Darby, it was known
to his fellow prisoners that he was
taking a drug at least twelve hours before
his death. It is strange that the jailer (lid
not know it also. It is stranger that he did
not watch Darby’s visitors, so as to prevent
them from giving him the drug.
In cases like that of Darby, however, the
jailer is not tho only person who is to blame.
The Sheriff, who hns the control of the
jailer, and sometimes the physician who
prescribes for the prisoner, are often to
blame. The latter two are not infrequently
guilty of carelessness. The one fails to ex
ercise close supervision over his deputy and
the other is too ready to follow the sugges
tions of the prisoner in making prescrip
When a prisoner is placed in the care of
tho officers they are responsible for him,
and they ought to be required to render a
strict account of their trust. If the pris
oner commits suicide an investigation
should be made, and, if the officers have
been careless, they should lie punished. It
is os much their duty to prevent an escape
by death us it is to prevent one by the
breaking of locks.
At Leominster, Muss., a curious ecclesiasti
cal case is soon to be tried. Two Methodist
preachers were invited by their host, a Mr.
Curtis, to go fishing on Sunday. They re
fused, and one of them in tho course of a
sermon severely criticised Mr. Curtis. At
dinner on the same Sunday both preachers
ate of the fish which Mr. Curtis caught.
Mrs. Curtis didn't like the criticism upon
her husband, and revenged herself by mak
ing it known that tho two preachers had
eaten part of the fish. Charges of unchris
tian like conduct were preferred against
them, and they have been suspended pend
ing their trial. The question at issue is
this: Is it sinful to eat fish cuught on Sun
At Dead wood, Dak., u few days ago some
young moil held a meeting for the purpose
of organizing a branch of the Young Men’s
Christian Association. One of them, who
claimed that his grandfather was the third
cousin of a deacon, suggested that more
good would be accomplished by organizing
a Joint Stock Horse Racing Association.
The suggestion received unanimous ap
proval, and now Dead wood "points with
pride” to the deep interest her citizens take
in religious matters.

MRS. CLEVELAND’S AMBITION.
She Wants a Second Term, and She
Has Influence With the President.
FYom Washington Letter to the Boston Post.
“I am surprised at the avidity with which the
newspapers of the country swaliow the state
ment that the President has expressed himself
as satisfied with one term, and that he will not
allow his name to be used again.” said a gentle
man from Buffalo to your correspondent to-day.
"I do not believe that the idea of standing for a
second nomination ever occurred to him when
he wrote his celebrated letter to Mr. Curtis. At
that time he was in a condition to be contented
with a single term. But events have ripened in
the last two years, and besides he is married now,
and the possession of a wile often changes a
man's intentions entirely.”
“Have you any reason to believe that Mr.
Cleveland really does desire a renomination
“I have not put the question direct to him,
but I know absolutely, from very recent con
versations, that he has a very well defined de
sire to test his policy on the country. He has
that feeling, so common in men in public
office, to test the sense of the people on the
manner in which he has fulfilled the trust
imposed upon him. This feeling is a most
natural one. Besides this, it will be remem
liered that a great deal has been said from
time to time concerning the great dissatisfac
tion alleged to exist in Erie county, N. Y.,
over his course. The President desires to
know absolutely whether this dissatisfaction
is as widespread as it is said to be.”
“To what did you allude when you referred to
his marriage as having possibly changed his
ideas in reference to a second term?”
“Simply this. My daughter and Frank Fol
som were old schoolmates. They are still inti
mate friends. Mrs. Cleveland has made no se
cret among her friends of her desire to continue
as the mistress of the White House for, another
four years after her husband's first term as
President expires. Y'ou may set it down as a
certainty that the President will be guided
largely by the wishes of his wife in this mat

“Our church has got a bran’ new man.
The Baptis’ preacher can’t come near him,
And Sunday lieing bright and warm,
I thougnt I'd like to go and hear him;
But if I'd kuow'd 'twas fashion day,
With women dressed like fancy pieters,
To take my mind in sermon time,
I'd stayed at home and read the scripters.
"I’m old and I’m old-fashioned, but
I notice quick what isn’t decent,
And I say-women act like geese.
In apeing every style that’s recent.
They* comb their hair straight up behind,
And put in arrers for to pin it,
And friz and bang it down in front;
There ought to be a law agin it.
“They buy the highest hats there is,
And make ’em higher yet with trimmin’,
And feathers frizzlin' out, until
They look like Injuns more than women;
And bustles! land, I saw one girl

Had lace ami roses on the side,
And so it like to overcome her.
For when she saw that hunch o’ lace,
With artificial posies in it,

Bancroft Nominated Polk.
Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.
Opportunities were Improved for private con
versations with Mr. Bancroft. His loti.',' and use
ful life had given him advantages in knowing
and acting parts in the country's history never
recorded, which are as so many solid liuia left
out of mi anchor chain. Incidentally 1 remarked
tlint he and Mr, Polk were special friends, and
tie replied: “O, yes, 1 knew him before he be
came President. If the truth was told, it would
lie that I not only suggested him for the Presi
dency, lint advocated Ids fitness and availa
bility until his nomination was assured. Van
Burcn was a candidate, you reinemluir, but lie
was opposed bitterly, unit then (Jen. t ans, of
Michigan,was fought so vigorously in return t.’iat
I saw neither could get the two thirds necessary
to a nomination. Trtt>*, Van Buren received a
lore majority, hut he should not except as a
compliment I liked Cass and should have sup
ported him heartily, but 1 saw ho could not over
come the opposition. I knew Polk and Ids
strong qualities. New York was for Cass, but
readily accepted Polk on realizing the strength
of opposition to its favorite. Then I went to the
Kentuckey delegation. It was quite willing to
vote for Mr. Polk. The mention or his name to
l lie Tennesseeans was sufficient." "Bid you put
him In nomination?'' "O, no. I did not, nomi
nate him because my State was too weak. If
Massachusetts hod been a Democratic State I
should have done so with pride. I did make a
speech for my State when the time came."
"Well, Mr. Bancroft, he could afford to be
your good friend."
"But he never knew it," was replied quickly.
"I never told anybody but you."

There was so inn fun for a minute yesterday
afternoon in front of the Alliemarle. A young
Ittily, a long chain and a plig dog came along. A
small blac'i and tan dog rushed out of tile hotel
and in u jiffy had given the pug a sharp nip on a
hind quarter. The pug gave u ki-yi and ran
around the legs of a fat man who happened to
lie passing liy. The fat man got entangled with
the chain, and in trying to raise his left foot to
clear It lost his lgdar.ee and went headlong to
wards tile gutter. The pug bowled louder than
ever, his fair ow ner shouted , “You brute!" at
the fat man. whose umbrella in his stumble hud
struck her on the cheek. Several gentlemen
who were (touting down Broadway came upon
the scene just as the fat man was rising. They
thought he had struck at the young lady anu
one of them wanted to seize him by the collar.
Kbo, however, picked up the pug and hurried
ncross the sireet in l lie direct ion of Madison
Square. The fat man did not utter a word, but
looked as if he would like to give the pug a kick.

Miss Florence Marryatt bears this unmis
takable testimony to the politeness of Ameri
cans: “There is no gentleman like the American
man. However hurried a man may be he does
not shove a woman into the gutter to make room
for himself, nor does he stare rudely in her face
as she passes him, nor make remarks on her
apjiearance or her dress. There is no such boor
in the world as the middle-class Englishman,
and some of the members of the so-called
‘upper class' are not free from this species of
insolence. No mail in this country passes a
woman in the passage without raising his hat
until she is out of sight. Artisans in the street
will hold a shop door opep for you. or pick up
anything you may let fall, and a workman one
day seeing me carrying a heavy handbag on the
railway platform put down his own basket of
tools and relieved me of the burden.”
The Boston Transcript says: Some peculiar
circumstances attended the funeral of the late
Hon. J. M. Dyer, who was a highly esteemed
citizen of the Green Mountain State, at West
Salisbury, Vt., a few days ago. Mr. Dyer was a
man of massive size. No casket could lie found
large enough and one was made. It was six
feet six inches in length, two and one-half feet
wide and twenty-one inches deep. No hearse
was large enough to hold it, and six men were
required so take it through the front window of
the house to an express wagon, which was
barely large enough. The casket was with
great difficulty taken in and out of the church.
The grave was four feet wide and seven feet
long. Mr. Dyer stood more than six feet tall
and weighed three hundred pounds. He was
the largest man in the county, if not in North
ern Vermont. He leaves three sons, who stand
six feet high and are well proportioned.
Speaking of Prince M turice, of Montleart,
who died recently at Vienna, 80 years old. and
left his fortune of some $15,000,000 to the Queen
of Italy, Life (London i remarks that it was an
entirely unexpected gift to her. The Prince
was always an eccentric personage. The last
thirty or forty years of his solitary life were
spent at his splendid seat near Vienna, and he
had a mausoleum built in his park for his last
rest ing-place. The Viennese police, however,
have interfered in the matter, and. not allowing
his park to tie made into a cemetery, have
directed that his body should be buried in the
vaults of the chapel in the castle. The Prince
of Mot loart leaves no children. His only sister,
who also has an immense fortune, was mur
dered two years ago in her castle near Cracow,
and up to the present moment the Austrian
police have not succeeded in finding the mur
derer. Her daughter married the Marquis
Gonzaga-Wieloposki, son of the celebrated
statesman known for his endeavors to reconcile
Poland and Russia.
Vassili Samoiloff, whose f' jath has been an
nounced, was one of the most notable actors in
Russia. He was also a wit. and was fond of re
counting his adventures, one of which bears a
strong likeness to stories told of several other
comedians, t>n one occasion tin* Emperor
Nicholas sent for him, and then and there, with
out the uliges: preparation or warning, told Sa
mqilofT to imitutehim. The comedian promptly
seized a helmet, placed it on his own bead, and
then turning to the Minister on duty, said with
an air of authority: "You will grant Samoiloff
two months' leave ar>d give him 5,000 roubles out
of the Imperial Treasury." The Czar laughed
heartily and ordered his Minister to comply with
the command. Another time SanuiilofT, in a
piece which lie was playing, imitate, 1 to the
life a certain Count, notorious for his eccen
tricities and extravagance. The Count, who
happened to lie among the audience, wen! up to
the actor behind the scenes and congratulated
him on his sucress, hut added thut the re
semblance would lie more striking if, instead of
tile cold shirt-studs which he was wearing, Sa
moilolT hud put on diamond studs. Then, suit
ing Cm action to the word, the Count took off
ills own diamond studs and presented them to
the comedian. Samoilof? was u general favor
ite. and his many sallies were applauded even
by those at whose expense he indulged his wit.
